The ACLU has filed suit against numerous agencies of the Obama administration including Defense, Justice and the CIA for their refusal to disclose information related to the targeting and killing of US Citizens. They sought to find out only the legal and factional rational for these killings. Here is the response
"The office of legal council neither confirms or denies the existence of the documents described in your request. We cannot do so because the very fact of the existence or non existence of such documents is itself classified,protected from disclosure by statue and privledge"
Now I know some of you despise the ACLU but I think what there requesting is something we all should be interested in.
Glenn Greenwald asks a very compelling question: " what more tyrannical power is there than for a government to target its own citizens for death — in total secrecy and with no checks — and then insist on the right to do so without even having to explain its legal and factual rationale for what it is doing?"
